First time Snowdon for me but it will be my third marathon.
I've been a consistently inconsistent runner so maybe this year will be different!
Given the hills how much slower is Snowdon than other marathons? Given my PB is 4 43 for a flattish city marathon on, in hindsight not enough training. (Got caught by the 4 30 pacer at mile 21, hung on for 2 miles and then died a slow miserable death!). Am I looking at a 5 15 or 5 30?
Obviously I'm going to train more and take this one seriously.

Hi Walrus. I'm planning on 5:10 for my marathon so I'll look out for you - that will be about the time you should expect judging by your other times. A 4:00 flat marathon would correspond to about 4:15 for this one which, yes, does have the odd slope or two.
That sounds like fun TR. You have a busy year planned by the sounds of it. I have finally awoken from my winter running hibernation and slowly (very slowly according to the Garmin) getting back into it. First marathon entered is Worcester in May followed by at least two more before the Snowdonia Trail in July. You got your place sorted yet TR??
Yes that looks like it could be good one. Done his trail marathon a couple of times and they were really well organised.
Glad to hear your long term injury is on the mend TR. Guess it has just given up trying to stop you from running as a lost cause!
Sounds like a decent performance under the circumstances TR, well done. Did you run home as well??
